Rising electricity and gas prices and What the experts are saying and predicting

In March 2022, Money-Saving Expert Martin Lewis warned anyone who uses direct debit to pay for their energy bills. The TV finance expert was concerned that people could make a huge mistake if they try and change the way they pay to try and lower their outgoings each month

He said: “WARNING! Many talking about cancelling energy Direct Debits to ‘keep in control’ and just pay when billed.

“Yet be aware that’s usually charged at a HIGHER RATE. Price cap (for someone with typical use) paying by:

“Monthly DD £1,971. Prepay meter £2,017. Quarterly bills £2,100”

This is just one expert’s opinion, but in reality, I think everyone is wondering what else could increase at such a ridiculous rate.  The reality is many people are struggling to pay their monthly outgoings and feel completely stuck in a rut.
